    Murchison Mustang Movers Physical Education
    Our mission is to equip learners with the knowledge, fitness and skills that will empower them to make health and wellness a life-long priority.
    There was sweat and no rain!  Thank you to all of the volunteers without whom we could not manage the magic of a "free range roaming" style Field Day.  As usual, the water events were super popular, and Traverse/Reverse just edged out Hydrate-Or by a dinosaur's tooth's length.  The HHS Ready-Set-Teachers, PALS, Volleyball and Ladies Basketball teams rallied around our school to model safe and healthy habits.  
    Murchison Mustang Movers l-o-v-e our community!
    Dr. Bain donated your Mustang's t-shirt.  He's the best!
    Dr. Bain
      you are your child's most influential wellness teacher.  Thank you for establishing healthy habits like walking to school, drinking water rather than sugary drinks, sweating for 60 minutes daily, sleeping the right amount, brushing twice a day for 2 minutes, limiting screen time to less than 1 hour each day, playing with friends and family members, and talking about feelings and plans every day.
    Working together has  made MES the Healthiest School in the Austin area for the second year in a row!  Our GO!Garden is up and running as a result of last year's $1,000 award.  We will use this year's $1,000 to increase daily cycle usage by hosting an after school cycling club, holding bike repair clinics and teaching cycling safety to 2nd-5th graders.
    Thanks y'all!
    healthiest school  
    Keep up the important Home Work, friends.
     Mrs. Silva, Mrs. Dilan and I have been keeping the Go!Garden healthy and productive this summer.  If you stop by and pick, be a good steward and pull some weeds while you are there.  It takes a village to enjoy the fruits of our labor.   Nature nurtures learning brains.  

    What's in a game?

    Physical education classes at MES are designed to develop your student's balance, body control, movement skills, knowledge base  and preference for healthy habits. We follow the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills standards for Physical and Health Education plus the Coordinated Approach to Child Health program.  
    This November we are learning about Native Americans' childhood games.  Turkeys are very popular in the gym, and boy can we ever follow the beat of the Turkey Tango.  If your child teaches you the steps, send a note.  Better yet, upload a video and email me.  That would be fun. 
    Come in anytime with your athletic shoes tied and have some fun with your child and 70 plus of his/her closest friends!


  • Go!Garden is on the Grow!

          We came, we watered, we moved rocks, we climbed walls, and we shared the sand.  But first, we enjoyed an 8 minute jog/walk, 4 minutes of upper body strength training followed by a cool drink of button water.  We left tired, sweaty, accomplished, innervated and happy.  It was just another lesson for your child and 75 of his/her closest friends in Murchison Mustang Movers Physical Education class at Murchison Elementary. 

          Your Mustang is ready to tackle the rigor of Summer scheduling, sun fun,  and family outings.  For movement's sake, include athletic shoes, socks, insect repellant, sunscreen, a hat, a first aid kit and plenty of friends for your next outing.  Kids definitely need their 60 minutes of sweaty physical activity each day of the summer.

          With that, we'll see you in August. Our GO!Garden will be in harvest mode, and I can't wait to see how much you grow this summer.  Check out the history of our school garden project.  You'll be glad you did.
